Abstract

We describe a new species of mite Hoploseius oblongus sp. nov. (Acari: Blattisociidae), from adults collected on sporophores of the red-belted bracket fungus, Fomitopsis pinicola (Polyporaceae), in Slovakia. Mites were found on the lower fertile surface of the fungus, including inside spore-bearing pores. The new species has an unusually elongated body, which appears to be an adaptation for a living inside the fungal pores. An updated key to the world species of the genus Hoploseius is provided.
